(au) wrote: Historical drama almost never comes short on costume. This film captures the panic and the fear surrounding the French court on the eve of the revolution really well, but the storyline is too flimsy and the pace is too slow.
(mx) wrote: very satisfying movie about jerks who are eaten by a bear. my only real complaint is that there is too much talking by said jerks in between the scenes of bear carnage.

(nl) wrote: Robots is a disposable affair that's somewhat entertaining to a degree, but ultimately lands in the category of forgettable animated films overshadowed by other immensely superior entries. The voice acting is adequate and the visuals are decent, but the story was uninteresting and while the humor sometimes worked, it more often fell flat. Robots never stands out whatsoever and I found the Fender character obnoxious, but if nothing else is on TV but this, it's serviceable in that respect. Otherwise, it's a decent affair but not a must-see.
(ru) wrote: KEN LOACH, which I consider to be the greatest living filmmaker working today, creates films that delve into the conflicts of the Human Condition and Social Systems --- he's equally at home criticizing the Right or the Left for their demagogic diatribes and absence of logical actions. If Cinema with a Political Foundation scares you, don't even attempt to tackle him. However, if your mind's open enough his films may just be an epiphany.
(it) wrote: I really like this powerful but touching story of love and loss that reminded me of Vertigo, with the main character's obsession with a man who looks like her lost husband, and whom she tries to make her new lover become. The outcome here is far more poetic, whereas in Vertigo, there was poetic justice, but not the upward spin.
(kr) wrote: I watched this because Singapore Airlines had me believe they were showing the 1939 classic. In fact, I think that's what they thought they were showing. When it started out, I was still fooled because of the 1960s production values and I actually didn't know the original was done way back in 1939. Still and all, it was entertaining and you could do worse than picking this out of the weekly rental bin for a rainy afternoon especially if you want to see what a bunch of 70s country music stars come up with to remake a 30s classic in the 80s using 60s dialogue and camerawork.
